Aston Villa agree to pay £20m fee for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins

Aston Villa are believed to be on the verge of signing Brentford striker Ollie Watkins according to Football Insider reports.

Watkins continues to be linked with a switch to the Premier League and reports claim that Villa could confirm the deal in the coming days.

Villa have reported told Brentford that they are willing to meet the asking price of £20m together with a five-year contract to sweeten the deal.

Watkins was outstanding for Brentford last season, registered 26 goals and three assists in 50 appearances across all competitions and his goalscoring abilities could prove vital for Villa next season.

Villa are looking to improve their Premier League standings after narrowingly escaping relegation back to the English Championship - a definite emphasis on bolstering their attack and defence.
